    Photographing with umbrella...

    Hi!
    Wanted to show off my mudman in the right element for it.


    Came out rather well I think.
    Only problem is that you really would need an umbrella to go out today. I'm having none of that. Time to give the flash umbrella a go. Setup beneath, none to complicated, just two white reflectors surrounding the watch. And some water hosed down on it to give a wet look. Even tried to spray it with kitchen cleaning stuff to try to create driplets (haven't got one flower water spray shower thingy) but that just created foam...

    Setup beneath:



    Quick and easy, took about five minutes including post processing.
    Umbrella photography is highly recommended!!!
    Hope you liked it!
    Kindly
    /john

    Very good technique. I bounce the light of the flash off of white walls and ceilings to diffuse the light. But have been thinking of getting an umbrella soon.

    Fantastic shot, good use of bouncing to give an even light over the scene. Have never used a hammerhead flashgun with an umbrella, seems to work well. Keep up the good work...
